success of COPD disease control is compliance in taking the

Pulmonary special Hospital in Bantul Yogyakarta. The

patients for each group. The intervention group received
SMS and brief counseling, while the control group received

based on interviews using Morisky Medication Adherence
Scale (MMAS) questionnaire. The results showed that from
66 patients, 49 patients (72.2%) had a high level of compliance, 12 patients (18.2%) a moderate compliance and
5 patients (7.6%) a low compliance. MMAS analysis results
showed that there was significant difference p = 0.000 (<0.05)between before and after intervention. For the control group there was no significant difference p = 0.306 (> 0.05). SMS and brief counseling in patients with COPD effectively enhanced the patient's compliance.
